Every time I go to a grocery store, I check for the iconic green cap, but I typically settle for a store-brand product. It just isn't the same.

Huy Fong Foods, Inc. has been dealing with a devastating chili pepper shortage.

Back in 2022, sriracha production was completely paused because Huy Fong Foods, Inc. could not make the recipe anymore due to the lack of chili peppers. It looks like the tide is changing but with a cost.

I was on Facebook, and one of my friends posted about how he got his hands on a bottle. He let me know that he purchased the bottle from Amazon.

I didn't believe him, but it is true. Huy Fong Foods, Inc. is selling sriracha again. At the time of writing this, the chili sauce is $12.99.

If you would like to find sriracha in-store, check Target's website. Currently, there is a supply in Glendale. You can also buy sraracha on the Target app or website.

 

The Taste Might Be Different

Multiple TikToks have surfaced around the "new" sriracha. Some users have said that the new sriracha tastes differently.

 

The color does look a little different. I'll have to try it myself.
